Vitamin C Linked to Lower Cardiovascular Disease Risk – Pharmacy Times
“We know that fruit and vegetables are healthy, but now our research is pinpointing more precisely why this is so. Eating a lot of fruits and vegetables is a natural way of increasing vitamin C blood levels, which in the long term may contribute to reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and early death,” said researcher Boerge Nordestgaard, MD, in a press release. “You can get vitamin C supplements, but it is a good idea to get your vitamin C by eating a healthy diet, which will, at the same time, help you to develop a healthier lifestyle in the long term, for the general benefit of your health.”
The study authors plan to follow up on their findings, with further research, to investigate additional factors that may contribute to cardiovascular health.
